Gaza: Brigade fires mortar shells at Israeli force

Oct. 25, 2010 8:48 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 25, 2010 8:37 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility Sunday for firing four mortar shells toward an Israeli force in Al-Qarara, south of Gaza City, a statement read.

The brigades said the mortar shelling targeted a force penetrating the Abu Thahir area east of Al-Qarara and assured of "their right to resist any Israeli aggression against the Palestinians and to continue the jihad until the Palestinian territories are liberated."

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the fire and said one of the shells landed in Israeli territory, with no reports of damage or injury.
